WHAT IS KJF?
The Kent Justice Foundation (KJF)
is a student organization committed to providing Chicago-Kent College of
Law students with the opportunity to work in the public interest sector.
KJF has the sole mission of establishing summer fellowships for students
who work in public interest law organizations. Through annual fundraising
events, KJF hopes to provide public interest organizations with much needed
assistance, while offering the students invaluable legal training through
their summer fellowships. KJF also sponsors a public service project
each semester. There are no dues, and anyone is welcome to join anytime!
TENTATIVE SCHEDULE OF MEETINGS
FOR SPRING '99 SEMESTER
This year's KJF Auction is scheduled for Wednesday March 24, 1999 at night in the Auditorium (2 days before Spring Break).
The KJF Auction is an annual event held each spring in which items such as weekend stays at hotels, dinners with professors, tickets to sporting events, and even airline tickets which are donated from area establishements are auctioned off to raise money for fellowships for students that work at public interest organizations over the summer. Kent students, alumni, faculty, and friends are all invited for a good time. In addition to the Auction, which was sponsored by Sam Adams, a wide variety of food, beer, and wine are served. Last year's auction was a great success- hundreds of people attended and over $16,000 was raised for fellowship money. Recent recipients of fellowhips have worked for organizations such as Cook County's Public Guardian, Cook County State's Attorney, AIDS Legal Council, Legal Assistance Foundation, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Generally, these recipients are students who have actively participated in KJF events. If you are interested in helping out with the Auction, or other aspect of KJF, please e-mail Auction Co-Chair Heather Fritsch (hfritsch).
